I had a busy week. I started walking with a friend of mine again. It’s all completely done in a social distance manner. Waucoma, where I like is a small town with little traffic on the roads. She walks in one lane of the road, Rosie and I walk in the other. That’s been taking up an hour or so of my days during the week. I’m SO happy to be doing it. I need the fresh air. Rosie needs the fresh air and I need adult conversation with someone who isn’t my kid!! Trust me, I love my kids but hearing about life outside of my bubble is awesome. My friend that I walk with has very limited people in her life as well so I feel comfortable with our walking.
Buck and his kids came home for the weekend. It was WONDERFUL. I’ll tell you more about that coming up. That means I didn’t sew over the weekend but enjoyed family time instead. PERFECT!!
While the kids were playing on Sunday I did a little counting. Two blog readers sent me their mystery leftovers that they did in batiks. Between mine and theirs, I had 131 triangles already made. I quickly cut out the rest that I needed.
I’ll finish them up this week and move on with the new release. It was great to be able to use up the extras in a quilt.
I’m getting excited to that we’re getting closer and closer to an end on the quilts I started sewing during covid. I’m ready to pick my own project to sew.
Did you see that the Old World Fantasy quilt from Quilted Twins was revealed? If you missed it, here it is….
I didn’t get all the triangles finished from the week before. They are sewn but not pressed. I snuck ahead and worked on the chain blocks.
They are all sewn but not pressed.I have to say, I really like the quilt and am really glad I participated in the mystery. Becky did a great job and seriously, I didn’t have any idea on how all of it would come together.
I will keep working on it but it’s going to take me a bit to finish it up. Normally I hate sewing blocks on point…I do it but it’s not my favorite. I’m happy that these are big blocks as it will make sewing them on point much easier.
Other than that, I worked on cleaning the sewing room some more. I got more totes in so more organizing happened. YAHOO!! I’m so pleased with how it’s looking. The closet is finally looking like the storage space I dreamed of. I’ll show it all off when I’m done and answer the questions I got about storage.
I also have a quilt on the frame…
I’m getting towards done but this thing is a beast. I didn’t realize it was so big. UGH. Hopefully that will get done and I can load the next one that is EXACTLY THE SAME QUILT on the frame next. More UGH. One is Kelli’s. One is mine.
Seriously, this block of the month quilt has really taught me a lesson…and it’s a big one. NEVER DO A BLOCK OF THE MONTH!! I know many of you enjoy them but I now know. They are not for me.
I’m hoping to get a little more accomplished this week. Last week was a big week in many ways for me. Follow the blog this week and I’ll tell you why it was such a big week.
